Girlboss Radio: Kathryn Minshew, Founder and CEO of The Muse


Kathryn Minshew wants you to know what you’re getting into. In 2011, she founded The Muse, a career-development platform that provides comprehensive, behind-the-scenes information on job listings from bigwigs like Facebook, Hearst Media and HBO as well as up-and-coming innovators in tech, media, the arts, fashion, food—you name it. Over the last 11 months, The Muse has more than quadrupled in size and presently helps over 6 million job seekers with distinctive features like footage from company offices and interviews with employees, plus professional career coaches who will Skype with you and offer networking advice. Minshew has been on the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Media list twice as well as INC’s 15 Women to Watch in Tech, and she joins Sophia on the podcast this week to talk about saving money to start your own business, the grueling days of pitching investors, and what an ideal job candidate looks like.
